Happy Candlemas/Groundhog Day!!!

Here's to whatever day you recognize today. Let the Sun burn brighter and warm us the hell up, cause I am sick of cold, ice, cold, snow, cold and cold. Let Winter End!
According to the old English saying:
If Candlemas be fair and bright,Winter has another flight.If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,Winter will not come again.

From Scotland:
If Candlemas Day is bright and clear,There'll be two winters in the year.

From Germany:
For as the sun shines on Candlemas Day,So far will the snow swirl until May.For as the snow blows on Candlemas Day,So far will the sun shine before May.

And from America:
If the sun shines on Groundhog Day;Half the fuel and half the hay.

Hey, there. Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for the compliments on the yarn. It's actually yarn that I dyed with Kool-Aid a year ago. It's Knit Picks dye-your-own and four different Kool-Aid flavors--sour apple, blue raspberry, cherry, and lemonade. I think if you search my archives--I think it's March 2006, you can see how I dyed it.

Happy Groundhog's Day!

Well, Candlemas was sunny and bright here in the UK so that could spell bad things...and the weathermen keep telling us we are likely to get a really cold spell. We've had such a mild winter so far and the evenings are starting to draw out so we're all thinking about spring but I think late Feb/early March could bring some shocks our way.
ps hope your parcel arrived safely? It was posted over a week ago and even allowing trans-atlantic post should have reached you by now.
